Happy Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by to check out my Cooking With Cricut Challenge post. Melin asked the team to come up with a project using the following color palette:
Brown, kraft, cream, green and red -- perfect colors for the Fall season! Here is what I came up with . . .
A tall card! My card base is a cream-colored card stock and measures 9 1/4" tall by 4" wide (folded). The layered kraft-colored piece measures 8 1/2" tall by 4" wide. Each of my paper "ribbons" was cut from leftover scraps -- there are two pieces of grosgrain ribbon in there, too. The paper ribbons measure 1" wide by 2"tall and 3/4" wide by 2" tall. I created them using the Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge and Cricut Design Studio software. I simply welded a rectangle and two triangles together to mimic the "tailed" ribbon. The "happy birthday" phrase was printed out using my computer. And a few buttons tied with binder's thread and a bit of red ink add the finishing details to my card.
I hope you'll head on over to Cooking With Cricut and play along with us. You have until next Tuesday at midnight to link up your project using our color combo -- you might just be our next "Top Chef!"
